About this title


The essays in this study take an anthropological approach to understanding adolescence in the Islands of the Pacific. They explore the biological basis of teenage rebellion, the role of the adolescent in Pacific Island cultures, and teenagers' influence as agents of change.

From the Publisher:

"This exemplary collection - finely honed, rich in ethnographic cases and theoretical import - explores adolescence both as a biosocial landmark in the life of the individual and as a prefiguration of changes in the adult society. A landmark in itself, th is volume is essential reading for anyone interested in adolescence, youth culture,' and social change in the Pacific - and elsewhncyclopedia articles, and chapters in books. He is the author of Guardians of the Flutes (1981); Intimate Communications: Ero tics and the Study of Culture (with Robert J. Stoller, 1990); and Same-Sex, Different Cultures (1997). He is the editor of Rituals of Manhood: Male Initiation in Papua, New Guinea (1982); Ritualized Homosexuality in Melanesia (1984, 1993); Gay Culture in America (1992); and Sexual Cultures, Migration, and AIDS (1997).
